Extract Price and Uploade it into my Page?

Hi
Some Company offer an Iframe with there Data but the are rubbish.
So my idea is let a script run every ~12h (+ X Min) to extract the Price.

Does anyone do something like that before? The Point is how do deal with the Date? And how to Upload it into an Database?

Thanks!

Hum..., LOL...!, talking about "rubbish Data Quality", this is how I had reacted 21 months ago to one of your Threads... I still stand after it, nearly 2 years later and 20 more Posts on the Forum from your side... (And I think I didn't answer any of your Threads anymore since...):

I might have some interesting Story for you about "Shadoks"..., do you want to hear it...?

But OK, good luck with this one anyway... :|

The problem with Imacros Browser still exist. The ignore if the page is loaded or not and cunitionue the script it count for example from 2 to 30 in some seconds.... :roll:
I use mostly the Firefox where the same Script work. Dont ask me why...

So back to Topic.
For example that Site: https://salzburg-verkehr.at/tickets-far ... s/?lang=en
There are lot more of Public Transport Company who change the Fare from a Day to another without any information.
I will run my own Fare calculator who include all Fares of the Country.

How to keep it consistent?

sorry for my bad english.
